Democrats, NAACP Get Crack Squad Out For Voter-Registration Efforts

In a story that will redefine the term "crack troops", a volunteer for Democrats and the NAACP tried to pay registration-gatherers in illegal drugs:

Defiance Deputies along with Toledo Police Department detectives conducted a search warrant of a residence on Woodland in Toledo, believed to be the home of the woman who hired Staton to solicit voter registration. Officers confiscated drug paraphernalia along with voter registration forms from the home. The occupant of the home, Georgianne Pitts, age 41, advised law enforcement, along with Ohio B.C.I.&I., that she had been recruited by Thaddeus J. Jackson, II, of Cleveland, to obtain voter registrations. Pitts admitted to paying Staton crack cocaine for the registrations in lieu of money.

A business card provided by Pitts indicated that Jackson is the Assistant NVF Ohio Director of the NAACP National Voter Fund.

Predictably, instead of going out and getting valid registrations, the addict instead filled a hundred or so applications out himself. It seems that Democrats and the NAACP in Ohio want to stage their own version of Rock The Vote, one that MTV probably won't approve.

Put this in with Democrats' affiliation with Americans Coming Together, which hired sex offenders and other felons to go door-to-door to get registrations, and you have the makings of a very desperate, and extraordinarily stupid, effort to swing this election. Will the Ohio Democratic Party and the local NAACP terminate anyone associated with this project, or will they make the same kinds of excuses we heard when the news broke on ACT's hiring practices? Ohioans should take careful note of these methods and choose their representatives accordingly.
